Beautiful relaxed place with fantastic hosts. Wonderful pool, spectacular views, and comfortable spacious apartment. Go! You won't be disappointed. There is a reason so many people go back year after year...
Our second visit here.. we love it. The position of it, the scenery, the peace, tranquility and the beauty. We love the environmental ethic and the laid back vibe. The accommodation is simple and comfortable. The first time we stayed in Raffaello and this time stayed in Bramante. We love both, but prefer Bramante as it is cooler and closer to the pool. The views are more spectacular from all windows... Our son loves it here, just running around the garden, swimming in the pool and helping Bob water the vegetables!. Thank you guys, you have created something special.. a rural retreat, we will return!
From the wonderful warm welcome on arrival to the beautiful apartment and the lovely grounds and swimming pool everything about our stay was just perfect. Bob and Ian the hosts are as friendly and as helpful as can be and directed us to many good meals and beaches in the local area. I really can't recommend it highly enough.
We have just returned to the UK following our third visit to Casal dei Fichi. Bob and Ian are so good at what they do. Great hosts, handsome accommodation, beautiful views into the surrounding countryside. Like the background to a Renaissance painting the property sits in an area of hilltop villages framed against distant mountains. We have visited the Roman ruins at Urbasaglia, Urbino, the caves at Frasassi, the home of the Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi in Recanati and have now seen the Spring flowers on the summits of the Sibelline mountains. Following our hosts' advice we have had some wonderful meals off the tourist trail - this year the Osteria dei Fiori in Macerata was a particular highlight - and visited the potter Guiseppe Testa in Appignano. Such great value and beautiful bowls to take home in the hand luggage. Thinking about it I have failed to say how much we enjoy the weekly pizza parties and appreciate the beautiful swimming pool. Perfetto.
Super four day stay with good weather. Rossini apartment was delightful. Plenty of space for us and our lively two year old. A very relaxing time. We stocked up on food and wine locally and enjoyed the full size kitchen. Chickens, dogs, cats addded to the fun for our son. Pizza Afternoon was a highlight. Fifth trip here so we are biased! Enjoyed visiting nearby villages and the 'day to day'. Quality of Life 100%. Thanks to hosts Ian and Bob.
This is our second visit and yet again we found the location wonderful. The views are fantastic and anyone seeking serenity this is the place for you! You do need a car as the area is so rural but otherwise the perfect holiday. Bob and Ian are the icing on the cake and cannot do enough to help their guests in whatever way they can. We'll definitely be visiting again!
Fantastic accommodation in the stunning Marche region of Italy. Bob and Ian have created a peaceful and relaxing environment with all the amenities needed for a great holiday. The weekly pizza party was great fun, a lovely touch and a great opportunity to get to know our hosts and fellow guests. We had a fantastic holiday and look forward to staying at Casal dei Fichi again soon.
